I found some beautiful wild horse pictures lately. here's one above, if you want to see more just follow the link through. these horses are so free in heart, and in spirit, it must be amazing to watch them and work with them. I find there energy so uplifting and heartening. Its like they know something very wise that we don't,( or at we've lost connecton to it) it keeps them strong and peacefuly vibrant- know what i mean.
I am thinking about a dear friend of mine Annie, who is unwell and is going through a very tough time,so much so that she won't be able to read this message. A group of us who know her, but live apart from one another, joined in lighting a candle and sending our loving thoughts and prayers to her. It can be hard when there is nothing you can do and distance prevents a visit or a hug but i'm a believer that thoughts and prayers made with loving intent are carried to those in need and make a difference at a subtle yet worthwhile level.
Thoughts carry their own energy or vibration, when we think them they ripple out and affect so much more than our minds can percieve. I believe distance does not prevent Love from reaching us.
I guess its something mystics and believers have always intuited but which cutting edge science, such as metaphysics, is now able to percieve with the discovery of the unifying field of energy which all of life exisits within. They reach that point when they examine a particle and go as far as they can into it,smaller and smaller with a microscope, until they cannot go any further and where its all seen to be one energetic field- no longer can they sub divide or seperate. All life springs from and is contained within this field of energy. So nothing is entirely seperate. Here's a poem i like which sums it up eloquently...
The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion:
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by law divine
In one another's being mingle;
Why not I with thine?
See the mountains kiss high heaven
And the waves clasp one another
No sister flower would be forgiven
If it disdained its brother:
And sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea;
What are all these kissings worth
If thou kiss not me?
Its what the poets, ancient mystics, tribal elders, or faiths of many kinds have always spoken of, that we are One people, and what we do to ourselves or each other effects the whole. Just like if we pollute one area of the air or water it doesnt stay contained, it affects the world as a whole living organism.
So if i am throwing a pebble into a lake,making a prayer or a wish upon it for her peace (a lake just like the one the girl in the photo is beside) then its rippling out and touching my friend's heart however far away she is. I trust in her path and am hoping that after this time is over she will be able to recover anew and find brighter skies awaiting.

As our thoughts turn towards the beginning of a fresh year, one where "blue skies are coming", i want to thankyou for your support here over the months. It is such a comfort to share the journey with you, whether the skies are grey or blue,stormy or clear, to know i have you to talk to makes a difference. Thankyou for all the comments and our emails they mean so much. My blog may show some pretty things i find online,and i do enjoy that side so much! but its also about believing, connecting, expressing, nuturing and uplifting our spirits. As i spoke of above, us all being One, its SO good for the soul to feel part of such a lovely community of bloggers who give me all those things back in abundance.
love,gratitude and peaceful wishes always Kat x
